Nevada Rider Motorcycle Safety Program was created in 1991 within the Department of Public Safety. The Office of Traffic Safety develops, administers and manages the overall Program, as directed by the DPS Director.
The Program’s tasks are to ensure motorcycle training is available to all residents within the State at a reasonable cost and to monitor and ensure all training
providers in the State are conducting their training at high standards. The Program uses various media outlets to communicate the importance of safe riding to riders while encouraging other motorists to Share the Road with motorcyclists. The Program also works to create a comprehensive motorcycle program that addresses motorcycle issues regarding legislation, safe roadways, licensing and judicial and law enforcement training.
The Advisory Board was created in 1991 (NRS 486.376-377) to advise and assist the Program Administrator to develop, establish and maintain the Nevada Rider Motorcycle Safety Program. The Board’s responsibility was to regularly review
the Program, and make recommendations to the Program Administrator and Director of the Department of Public Safety. Effective July 1, 2017 the Advisory Board was abolished by legislative action.
